Re: Lun mapping to two igroups with two different HBA's

OK. It will be then no portset, single lif on a single FC physical port, and single SVM for FCP, since there are not too many hosts here.

 

What if I have about 10-20 AIX severs, and 10-20 linux servers. In your recommendation,
 Using two LIFs on a single FC port to separate two different type of platforms. Would that work, or should it be necessary? Any benefits by doing that, or make the thing more complicated in your opinion?

 

Re: Lun mapping to two igroups with two different HBA's

Create a failover group for lifs on 2 nodes. If you are using a single SVM with different lifs with same FC ports is not required. You are making it more complex :-)

Re: Lun mapping to two igroups with two different HBA's

a failover group for lifs in FC environment is not needed. Correct?

Re: Lun mapping to two igroups with two different HBA's

Yes, for FC failover groups are not required :-) ........ got confused with your bunch of questions :-P
